  • Description


    hello, my wife and I live on the island of Quihua, commune of Calbuco, Tenth Region, Chile on land of 4 hectares, where we do organic farming and conserve natural grasslands plus a small native forest, it is a quiet place with a lot of silence and contact with nature, when the sky is clear you can see the Andes, also can go down to see the water channels around the island, there are many flowers and very starry nights without light pollution.
